I just got the premiere 11 program, I have uploaded previously 60+ videos to youtube using movie maker. I uploaded a 7 minutes premiere 11 video fine but it willnot let me upload one that is 18 minutes. I think I need to convert the adobe project file to something youtube will accept???? Help Sam
As John says, YouTube does have a running time limit. We can't help you get around that.
But have you tried outputting your file and then manually loading it to YouTube, per the FAQs to the right of this forum.
BUT, YouTube will allow you to extend the length of videos that it will accept. I am allowed to upload very long videos, but APE won't let me! APE should not be enforcing YouTube rules that APE doesn't know about. That's quit frustrating.
Historically, this has happened a few times. YouTube decides on a scheme, and PrE is written around that, then released. At a point, after PrE was released, YouTube changes things, like extended accounts, that did not exist, when PrE was being written. This has been going on for a long time.
Once, just getting output for YouTube was difficult, as they changed what they needed, and what they did with the footage, with great regularity. It was like playing football, but with moving goalposts.
When something new, like extended accounts, is introduced, until the next version of PrE, the only workaround to accommodate those YouTube changes, is just as Steve recommends.
Thanks for the reply. Here is a bit of additional information. I am a
youtube partner, which means I can upload videos longer than 15 minutes. I
have done this many times with windows movie maker. Perhaps when I try
this with adobe premiere 11, the program applies this 15 minute YT
guideline on my videos. ????
I Don't have a better answer, not being totally versed in this aspect of
Yes, the direct upload to YouTube, from PrE will be the old Duration limitation. Just follow Steve's suggetions for manually outputting your video, then manually upload via your account, to YouTube.
Maybe PrE 12 will fully accommodate extended YouTube accounts - unless YouTube ups THAT Duration?
It has not yet been mentioned that there is are output presets for both YouTube and Vimeo in PrE 11. I've used them and they work well.
Publish+Share > Computer > AVCHD > Select YouTube from the Presets "drop down" menu (toward the bottom of the list). Then select a folder and save the YouTube optimized file. It can be of any length. Last, use the YouTube uploader at YouTube.
It does not appear that starting with AVCHD video is required. I tested it with some old .avi clips and is seems to work.
